How One Man Got Into Vibe

Andrew_Vibe(1)

Right before the Vibe book was announced for DC, artist Pete Woods was on Facebook asking for pictures of Detroit to use as photo reference because… well, he didn't want to show the same landmarks that you always see when anyone mentions Detroit.

Detroit resident Andrew Elia sent him over 300 photos. Woods was pretty pleased and said that he was going to give Andrew a mention in some way in an upcoming issue.

In issue 2 this week, Andrew appears on the first page warming himself over a trash can in a Detroit Alley. His surname is written in graffiti at the upper right corner at the top.

Just, you know, thought it would be nice to run a pleasant DC Comics story right about now.
